Some have lamented the facts that Jockety has not made a impact play of signing big star or making a trade for a big star. He certainly has changed things though since he became GM.
The outfield has been replaced completely. With the exception of Hopper all of the Reds outfielders from opening day 2008 are gone. Currently with the exception of Freel none have a job right now. I am sure Griffey and Dunn will obtain contracts, but I don't think either will earn half of what they did last year.
The catchers are also gone. I don't know if Ross has a contract yet, but I don't believe any of them will make half of what they did last year.
Hattleburg is gone. He wasn't signed by anyone else.
With the exception of Phillips,Votto and EE the Reds have completely retooled. true Gonzalez will be back at short after a year off due to injury. I had expected Turner to make some kind of splash, but that will have to be with Baltimore. I do expect him to make the Orioles out of ST, but I don't expect him to replace Roberts.
Baseball is a buisness, and the purpose of buisness is to make money. With the economy like it is Jock may be making the right moves.
